Your Perks: 1) Two pairs of perfectly fitting jeans for $153. Keep what fits, return the rest for free. 2) A hoverboard-like device so you can live out all your Back to the Future Part II–related fantasies. Well, almost all. 3) A box full of sexy things. It’s okay to admit you want.
Things to do for September 17, 2015
Strip Zeppelin, a Patio Luau and an Actual Pity Party
This weekend’s moderator will be the weekend.
A Vital Update on Your Hummus Life
You: Boy, I wish there were a new fast-casual Mediterranean place to make me a hummus bowl
with slow-cooked beef and sriracha tahini for lunch.
Unidentified Voice: Try Tahaza Hummus Kitchen. It just opened by Lechmere.
You: Who are you?
Unidentified Voice: Shhhh.
There’s a Pity Party and You’re Invited
This is new. There’s an actual “Pity Party” being thrown by the Somerville Arts Council with sad live music, depressing comedians, melancholy poetry, Drabby the Sad Clown and ice cream from Gracie’s. Regular ice cream, not sad ice cream.
Scorpion Bowls and a Pig Roast
Rosebud just turned one. And to celebrate, they’re inviting you to a laser tag birthday party. Kidding. It’ll be a luau-themed patio party with live surf rock, scorpion bowls and a pig roast with sticky spare ribs and pork pot stickers. It’s an intense first-birthday party.
Much Led Zeppelin. Little Clothing.
Seeing Led Zeppelin live would be the best thing. Watching dancers remove their clothing to the sounds of Led Zeppelin is the second-best thing. And that’s precisely what’s happening at Oberon tomorrow night. As far as second-best things go: not bad. Not bad at all.
There’s Gin and Reggae Here
This Saturday, the city of Everett is closing down the streets between Night Shift Brewing and Short Path Distillery for a little Village Fest. There will be 11 food trucks. There will be live reggae music from the Wailers. There will be beer and gin. The city of Everett cares.
